Rotem & Mounir Saouma Chateauneuf du Pape Omnia 2015
|Region||France, Rhone, Chateauneuf-du-Pape|
|Brand||Rotem & Mounir Saouma|
What can you say about these wines? It's high drama everywhere: intensely lifted perfume of flowers and red fruit; dense, rich fruit and power, but wild savory notes, intense stony minerality. Yet the power is somehow also so vibrant and precise. A "new old" style of Chateauneuf.
This is sublime, with beguiling rooibos tea, blood orange and sandalwood aromas out front followed by a long and silky display of lightly mulled cherry, damson plum and raspberry fruit flavors. Light shiso leaf and sanguine notes lace up the finish while the fruit echoes admirably. Best from 2020 through 2040. 50 cases imported.
